New app ‘DigitalFiji’ to provide government contacts
11:03 pm GMT+12, 13/06/2018, Fiji

 DigitalFiji – a newly launched flagship programme in Fiji’s overarching digital transformation has been launched by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today.
 
DigitalFiji consists of a host of different mobile applications that aims to bring the Fijian Government’s services to the fingertips of all Fijians and in the process create a more efficient and effective way for the Fijian people to engage with their Government.
 
PM Bainimarama highlighted that DigitalFiji is only one part of a wide-reaching partnership they have undertaken with the Singaporean Government.
 
“When it came to finding the right partner for this project, The Singaporean Government was the obvious choice. Much of our own national ambition and vision echo the incredible progress Singapore has experienced over the last half century. “
 
“Our nations are natural partners. Though we may be small island states, our leadership and our achievements are enormous, even when compared to much larger nations around the world. And the Singaporean experience, taking a nation, a small island nation, making it strong and unified, and shaping yourselves into an international powerhouse; that is an experience that speaks to every Fijian, and our united Fiji can and must achieve.”
 
He said the app offers two key services under the DigitalFiji umbrella which are my-Feedback Fiji and Directory-At-Gov.
 
“It has a lot of exciting potential that’s going to make a real difference in the lives of our people, and today is only the start of our work to transform the way Fijians engage with each other and with their Government. Through DigitalFiji, Fijians will be able to access that style of leadership directly in the palm of their hands, and their voices can now affect change in their day to day lives more quickly and conveniently than ever before.”
 
Bainimarama said more Fijians are spending time on the internet and on their phones and that is where government services need to be offered.
 
The Prime Minister said he expects all permanent secretaries and civil servants to ensure that an up-to-date accurate information is readily available in real-time for all Fijians.
 
The government is expected to launch more apps in August.
